Are you looking for the BariatricPal Store? Go now!

Because so many believe we need the jolt caffeine gives. Look at the those caffeine shot thingies they have at most every store and shop! Just a sign of ther times. Invest in some sugar-free syrups like Torani if you must, have you tried Mio?

My grocery store sells Crystal Light with both caffeine and non caffeine. Both the liquid and powdered forms, just have to read the labels carefully. Try Amazon, maybe?

What about actual lemon and lime juice from the produce section? You know - the plastic bottles that look like the fruit.

I'm going to have to look at my crystal light powder that I just bought. I didn't realize it had caffeine. I like it so much and it has plenty of flavors to keep me drinking Water.

I was disappointed after buying y crystal light and found that it had caffeine, especially since I gave up caffeine a few months now. It never dawn on me that crystal light would have caffeine. I am still using them but will make sure to buy the one next time that are caffeine free.

I think only some Crystal Light has caffeine. I just check the box of the lemonade and it is not listed as an ingredient.

So, I’m having trouble locating non-caffeine based crystal light. Any one have other drink mix solutions? I only use them to cut the taste of Premier Protein Water, but why oh why does everything have caffeine?

Stevia sweet drops. I liked the root beer and cola flavors.

I just looked in the pantry and none of my Crystal Light (powder sleeves) or Mio drops has caffeine. I am going to try the stevia drops posted by Healthy-life2 if I can find them. Trying to drink more plain Water too. My sleeve seems to resist the plain water to a certain extent and I am not sure why...

I think it’s just the flavors I prefer... wild strawberry, grape and orange. I’ve previously had reflux and the lemonades scare me. I’m not a big tea drinker, so I’m loving these other options and recommendations.

        Congratulations to her Proud Granny, and wishing her a bright and successful future.

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.

        I use benefiber everyday in my water. it is flavorless. On days when I get a little backed up I use Miralax. It works great without any cramping.
